Vintage 1960 Vox AC15 TV Front 2 Tone Amplifier

Vintage 1960 Vox AC15 TV Front 2 Tone Amplifier

2-tone amplifier with the second generation cabinet, manufactured in mid 1960 (dated using Jim’s book!). The T530 speaker code is 07FE which is period correct and dates it to the 7th June 1960, and it has the original RIC cone.

You can buy this having been serviced to a playable & safe standard, by one of our leading amp techs. To find out more about what our service includes, please check out our terms and conditions before purchasing.

Condition

As you can see, overall ‘good’ condition, with obvious wear and tear – definitely a players grade amplifier, and not one for the collector.

Internal Condition

Internally awesome, really clean and original. Obviously the cabinet has sustained most of the gigging wear, and the internals haven’t, which is perfect for you players out there.

External Condition

Externally painted in a dark grey/blue colour – a regular occurrence back in the day. You can see bumps and scrapes to the tolex, having been well gigged in the past, and crocodile joins are visible. They are structurally sound, but may require a bit of glue if you are deciding to gig this amplifier, just to be safe! The bottom backboard has had some paint stripper on it in the past, hence a different colour to the rest of the amplifier. The top backboard has had two added jack sockets; one for a pedal to control the vib/trem, and one for an external speaker cabinet if needed. This is really handy for gigging!

Please have a close look at the high resolution photographs below, as these form part of our description.

Originality

Internally very original, including transformers and valves, and a few minor service components. Valves are mostly Mullard, with a changed JJ ECC83. There are a few service components that have been changed too. The amp has had a number of components changed to get the vib/trem circuit functioning correctly, including a new speed selector switch. This is quite common on Vox amps of this period. Externally, the knobs are newer replacements, along with the grill cloth and ‘Vox’ logo.

A beautiful ‘players’ grade amplifier, that has a sound to die for! If you want the sound of the classic AC15 TV front, but don’t want to pay the top money for a collectors piece, this is your amp!

At The Music Locker we will do all we can for you to get the instrument you want. You’re more than welcome to come and have a play on this, coupled with one of our vintage guitars!

The Music Locker prides itself on offering vintage and collectable pre-owned instruments and equipment (the Products).

We take all reasonable steps to ensure the equipment has been inspected by a competent person in the UK to ensure it complies with UK safety standards. This may mean it does not comply with the current standards in the country in which it will be subsequently used. It is the purchasers’ responsibility to ensure it is inspected by a competent person knowledgeable with the relevant electrical safety standards within that country, prior to connecting to any live electrical circuit.

It is the philosophy of The Music Locker to keep all items as original as possible, only changing original components when absolutely necessary. This includes valves, capacitors, transformers, potentiometers, frets, etc. This gives the buyer the option of tailoring to their exact needs, and may mean that the item is not operating at optimum performance levels. Therefore, your personal preference may differ, depending on your circumstances (i.e. collector or musician), and you may decide to service the item in more depth upon receiving.

The Music Locker cannot accept responsibility for any costs of refurbishment to a standard different to the one advertised.
